I know it seems strange with snow on the ground to be having strawberry day. I have actually bought some really good strawberries lately. I think they are coming from Florida. Here are some great recipes to try using strawberries on this National Strawberry Day.

Well we had our first real snow day yesterday. They had been talking about it for several days now so I was prepared. I decided to surprise my husband with one of his favorite things from Mark's Feed Store in Louisville, Burgoo. If you are ever in Louisville be sure and check out Mark's Feed Store. Great BBQ and even better onion straws.
This is in the same category as Brunswick Stew. It is a nice thick soup.
Easy Kentucky Burgoo Recipe
1 pound stew meat
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 cups frozen corn
3 cups frozen okra
1 pkg frozen peppers and onions
1 6oz can tomato paste
Or you can use 2 16 oz pkg frozen gumbo mix instead of the corn, okra, peppers, and onions.

This is just a made up family recipe. I don't really know how it all came about. When I was little when we would have meatloaf for dinner with would have spaghetti with tomatoes. So the other night I really wanted some meatloaf and thought I haven't made that in a long, long time. In fact I only think I have made it one other time. So it was a great time to dust off the recipe and try it again.
A nice comfort food meal.

Last Friday we finally got the snow day that they had been promising us all week. It was a great day to stay indoors curl up with a good book or movie. I did both and also a little birdwatching. About mid day I decided I needed a little treat so I made these little indoor s'mores.
